Boynton Canyon Hike

NOTE: The following summary information is to help with hike selection and is not intended to be used for hiking the trail. For your safety and enjoyment, please obtain a copy of Sedona Hiking Guide which is available here.

Summary:  A hike in a canyon with nice red rock views

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:  About 3 miles one way

Trailhead Location:  The trail begins off of Boynton Pass Road

Description:  This hike is very popular with visitors to Sedona and is the location of one of Sedona's vortex sites. We like it for the good red rock views. Once you hike past the Enchantment Resort, the trail is shaded and views are excellent. You'll see some nice Fall colors during the third week of October after hiking in about 2 1/2 miles. You won't feel alone on this hike as many hikers are on the trail.

Here is a link to a video from our November 2010 hike. The first part shows the vortex at the Boynton Vista (
